On the Garmins you have NMEA-IN/NMEA-OUT setting on your Interface
menu.  Just don't enable NMEA-IN and you won't have this happen.

It's nice to be able to turn that on and see APRS stations on your
GPS map screen, so if I were you I'd at least hook up the wires so
you have that capability if you decide later that you want it.  You
can always delete waypoints by type to get rid of all of them at
once, without disturbing your other waypoints.
